The Queen's Jubilee celebrations may be the perfect opportunity for Prince Harry and Prince William to make amends. Still, a royal expert believes Meghan Marke may not want this to happen.


When Meghan Markle said yes to marrying Prince Harry, she knew that her life would change forever. Although accustomed to flashing lights and prying eyes, being part of the British Royal family meant the entire world watched her under a microscope.

Intense critics, extreme gossip, and little privacy were the least she could expect. However, Meghan chose the love of her life despite the string of challenges attached to being a British royal.

After their wedding, things went downhill for the new couple, who had many claims against the firm. However, the royal rift began when Harry and Meghan announced their exit from the family as working royals – news the other members did not take lightly.

After seeing the news on media outlets, the Queen was not surprised by how the press reported the news. Yet, she remained baffled by her grandson's decision to reveal his decision to the public before warning the family. "The Queen is feeling very let down," her spokesman, Dickie Arbiter, said.

Prince William was just as dumbfounded by Harry's actions and instantly knew that his father, Prince Charles, would negatively react. "My father will be furious," he said. "Not to mention your grandparents," his wife, Kate Middleton, added.

Still, Middleton did not disagree with the headlines that claimed Markle and Harry looked happy with their new path as independent royals. The Duchess of Cambridge was, however, correct in bringing up the disappointment of the Queen and Prince Philip, who said:


"This shows a complete lack of respect."

Prince Charles was, perhaps, the most furious of them all. According to his wife, Camilla, it is rare that her husband shows as much anger as he did upon learning of Harry and Meghan's exit.


On Harry's end, he felt blocked from seeing the Queen before the big announcement. Although what happened behind palace doors remains private, it was clear that everyone was upset.

The public's response came with hatred towards Meghan, and people wondered if the "Suits" alum was responsible for pushing Harry to make drastic changes that ruined his ties with his family. However, an insider said otherwise. The source said:

"Fundamentally, Harry wanted out. Deep down, he was always struggling within that world. She's opened the door for him on that."


Meghan wasn't happy with how her life with the royal family turned out, especially after sacrificing everything to be with Harry. "I gave up my entire life for this family," she told a friend. "I was willing to do whatever it takes. But here we are. It's very sad."

After their exit, Harry and Meghan had a controversial sit-down interview with Oprah Winfrey. They told the world their side of the story, exposing inside events that happened behind closed doors. Their explosive interview only added fuel to the fire between the royal family.

Still, the firm remained calm amidst all the negativity and released a statement that revealed they were "saddened to learn the full extent of how challenging the last few years have been for Harry and Meghan."



Harry and Meghan have since relocated to the US to start their lives as independent royals. In May 2022, reports claimed that William and Harry are healing their feud by frequently reconnecting through online and face-to-face chats before the Queen's Jubilee meeting.

The brothers message every so often on WhatsApp and have FaceTime calls with their kids after William made the first move. Their wives, however, have not yet had contact with each other and want to give their husbands space to fix their relationship first. A source said:

"William sees that Meghan is a good mother and loyal wife, and he is genuinely pleased for his brother. It seems that the two of them have healed the rift and are very much back on their old buddy terms."

Although the current situation does not erase the disappointment William previously experienced, he has somewhat put the past behind them.


"The Queen wanted the Jubilee to be a fresh start for the brothers," the insider said. "Harry has been looking forward to coming home and showing his family."



While the Jubilee is the perfect opportunity to fix the family feud, royal expert Howard Hodgson believes Meghan does not want bridges to be restored. He said:

"I don't think Meghan wants it to be repaired because if it was repaired, that might get Harry wanting to come back and play his role."

He added that Prince Charles might not want Harry back as well as he wants to focus on him, William, and Prince George, who are all in line for the throne.

On the other hand, the Queen will do everything to ensure that her grandson and Meghan feel welcomed at home and without hard feelings.

The royals are not the only family members Meghan is not on good terms with. Since her relationship with Harry began, the former actress has also been in a feud with her father, Thomas Markle, and sister, Samantha Markle.
